OV Library now an official Reading Room

We can tell you our big library news now: The Otselic Valley Library claims official Reading Room status through the 4 County Library System!This means we receive a rotating collection of books that will switch out every 6 months from the public library system servicing libraries in Broome, Chenango, Delaware, and Otsego Counties. This new collection will be of interest to readers outside of school who visit during Open Library hours. Yes, you can check them out!

Our first delivery has arrived – those were the boxes carried in by helpful students – and Ms. Charles has already shelved the books in time for today’s Open Library (Tuesday, Dec. 6, 3- 7 pm).

Just wait till you see what’s there. If you have favorite authors, you’ll likely find them. If you’re not sure what to read, there is plenty to discover!

Everything from suspense to cozy mysteries to fantasy to romance are here. Featured authors include James Patterson, Louise Penny, George R.R. Martin, Fern Michaels, Estuary Woods, Fredrik Bachman, Julia Child, Agatha Christie, Nora Roberts, Nicholas Sparks, Danielle Steel, Diana Gabaldon, John Grisham, Stephen King, Debbie Macomber, Anne Perry, and Janet Evanovich.

Biographies, memoirs, and history books cover Reagan, Fred Rogers, Al Capone, Julie Andrews, Sally Field, Mel Brooks, Robin Williams, Shotguns and Stagecoaches, and the Duchess of Windsor.

Did you like the movie “Where the Crawdad Sings”? The original book is here!

Do you prefer thoughtful content? We’ve got Sue Monk Kidd and Barbara Taylor Bradford.

Are you interested in titles that appear on “Best of” lists? Look for The Invisible Life of Addie Larue, H is for Hawk, Mexican Gothic, The Understory, and even The Magician by Colm Toibin.

Is nonfiction more your thing? Cookbooks are here. Bowhunting Tactics That Deliver Trophies too.
